If you're the type who gets excited when they come across a street that shares a name with you, a friend, an enemy or just anyone you know, here's some extremely exciting news: A new website , lets users type in two names and find out where in the United States roads that share those names intersect.
Jason Feifer, whose day job is editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur Magazine, got the idea for the site about two years ago, when he noticed a street sign in D.C. that shared a name with his wife, Jennifer. "I thought, wouldn't it be awesome if we drove this road one day and it turns out that it intersected with a road named Jason?" he said. "I thought if I could find a way to actually find that intersection somewhere in America, that would be an amazing place for us to go at some point."
Though there are loads of map services, Feifer didn't know of any that were searchable in a way that would let you find intersections of two specific streets. So he enlisted the help of a few tech-savvy friends and started building his own service that does exactly that. The result is an interactive site that lets you find the intersection of any two street names.
I tested out some intersections of my name (an extremely popular name — thanks, Mom). Here are my three favorite intersections of my name that I found:
1. Hannah Drive and Nathan Way (my 6th grade crush) intersects in Maine!
2. Hannah Way intersects with Arctic Loon Way in California. Wow!
3. Hannah Drive and Brooklyn Drive (where I live!) intersect in ... Oklahoma.
Anyway, you get the gist! Feifer said he's excited to see how couples use the service to see where their names intersect, and maybe even travel to those places. If you're down for a road trip, this makes for an incredibly cute engagement or anniversary photo idea. Small towns with cute road names are about to get much more popular.
